Hi,

I have booked into Wake Up from 16th December 2012 - 2nd January 2013 in a 4 bed shared dorm. Unfortunately I have cancelled my flights and because the booking is over xmas I cannot cancel the room.

The room cost me £600 and im hoping to sell it for around £300 ono.

Ryan, the booking advisor for Wake Up advised that the name of the room can be changed by email and I can get him to send the confirmation over to anyone who is interested.

If you are interested please message me on here.

Thank you :) x

Shame you had to cancel your flights. Can you not claim the cost of the room back on your travel insurance or had you not got it yet?

I have insurance through my bank but cannot claim as I dont have a valid reason to cancel :(

Its a shame as I have already lost £750 on my flights, £200 on my visa and now £600 on the hostel.. oh well live and learn! x
